By Witold Gombrowicz,Danuta Borchardt
Based loosely on Gombrowicz’s personal reports as an expatriate, Trans-Atlantyk is steeped in humor and sharply pointed satire, interlaced with darkish visions of battle and its horrors, that entreats the person and society ordinarily to upward push above the suffocating constraints of nationalistic, sexual, and patriotic mores. The novel's subject matters are common and its execution ingenious—a masterwork of twentieth-century literary artwork from an writer whom John Updike referred to as “one of the profoundest of the past due moderns.”
